    • Don't remove the rear panel completely yet. There is a cable connected to it! It is running from the finger print sensor to the display unit.

If you cant get suction because of cracks in the screen, use wide tape to create smooth surface.

If your screen is smashed, and nothing else will work (iSclack etc), you can get a thin blade between the casing and the screen assembly and the bottom. The screen assembly can then be pried out. I fought with mine before discovering this. Be careful of the broken glass.

I struggled to remove screen with suction cups due to damage to the back case. I used a jim to pry from bottom by usb c port, worked well.

  • Disconnect the flex cable and remove the headphone jack.

  • The old headphone jack is equipped with a rubber seal, which holds the jack down to the phone. Take it off and put it on the new headphone jack.
